“Great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

Located at Singel canal, give us great canal view from the room. It take 10 mins to walk from Central station, or take tram for 1 stop only. And we enjoyed delicious breakfast prepared by Margot, and when we check out, she helped us to carry luggage down the steep staircase. Thank you Margot for the great hospitality!! ^^

Upon arriving Margot upgraded us to an apartment of our own for the same price and gave us lovely local foods to make breakfast with. She even Included a bottle of champagne and strawberries since it was our Honeymoon!! What a surprise! She was very helpful in telling us some great places to eat. Awesome local Thai food just around the corner! Great weekend experience in Amsterdam, always felt safe and it was just a short walk from the train station and local shopping and dining. Thanks Margot!!

Margot is a wonderful Resource for finding just the right activities in Amsterdam. Just let her know what you are interested in, and she knows where to go and what to do. The rooms were spotless, quiet, and the breakfasts were exceptional. It is quiet, yet just a short walk away from the Dam, trams, and all the Centraal station. If you come to beautiful Amsterdam, stay here!

Stayed with Margot for 3 nights, a lovely B&B ideally close for walking round Amsterdam, however located in a quiet area of the Singel.
The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean, breakfasts beautiful and the view from the rooms over the canal is lovely.

After reading many trip advisor reviews and looking for a good central location I decided on Margot's B&B. My daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights and I was concerned that it might be too noisy on the canal during the summer, however it was quiet and the ideal location! Located on Singel, it was an easy walk from the train station and a great location to explore the city. Close to Anne Frank House and many other sites.
We stayed in the lower room which connects to the only bathroom and even though it was shared one night with another couple it was clean and the other guests were very considerate. The stairs are extremely narrow and step, so that must be a consideration for some people, however Margot was a wonderful host she even carried our bags for us up the stairs. The room was comfortable and the view over the canal was fabulous. The breakfasts were great and we loved Margot's homemade jams and her suggestions for sight seeing and restaurants.
It was wonderful to stay in Margot's home and feel like you are a local even for a short time. It was a very nice experience of Amsterdam and I highly recommend it. We will definatley stay her again when we return to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Two Rooms, both face the canal, the lower room is next to the only bathroom so it is most convenient

We stayed here with our two young kids and my brother and his wife and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Margot was extremely friendly and helpful and provided a number of great suggestions for things for us to do, some of which we would not have probably considered, all of which were great.

The accomodation is of a very high standard and the breakfast was also great. I will certainly recommend this place to others.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Margot's B & B! The location is excellent, and close to everything. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed waking up to a view of the canal each morning. Margot's breakfasts were delicious, and we especially liked her homemade fruit preserves. Margot was an excellent host, we would definitely come back!
